Today is one of my off-Fridays and it’s a good thing I didn’t have to commute to work today because White’s Ferry got stuck this morning.
We have had a lot of rain the last two days so tree branches and other debris is going down the river. It looks like a large tree on one of the banks came loose and got jammed on the cable.
The ferry was on it’s way back to the Maryland side and it got stuck twenty feet from shore. The water is only three feet deep there so if they really wanted to they could wade back to shore.
